to american spring wire, mr. romney hammered away at president obama for not being tough on china. not the way that he mitt romney would be tough on china. but the company mr. romney chose for his backdrop that day, the company that he chose to implicitly help make that case so happened to be a poster child for success by president obama in getting tough on china. in 2009 in the first months of president obama's presidency, american spring wire joined with two other makers to ask for help. china was unfairly dumping steel wire in the united states market at artificial low prices. they asked for help. the commerce department said they would investigate and the commerce department did move to protect american spring wire. they cracked down on china for dumping their underpriced product. thus the company was benefitted. they got the help they wanted. a company that was then used as a backdrop for mitt romney saying president obama had not been tough on china. today mr. romney gave a major address on economic policy. this is part of his closing argument for the presidency. he delivered the speech
than two feet possible. >> seems unbelievable. a couple minutes before we hear from mr. romney. i want to ask you quickly. they're calls this a storm that could be one of historic proportions, and something that is array event. >> basically because it's just so large. the span is 1,000 miles from the northern end to the southern end. so we're going to be feeling impact widespread. talk about snow also possible with the storm system. and tropical impact, and something we have been noting is that the pressure has been dropping. what that means is that sandy is intense -- intensifying, and we expect it to transition. >> we want to take you out to pensacola, florida, where governor mitt romney is about to walk out and greet the thousands of supporters who gathered to hear him speak. they're wrapping up a video that was introduced by senator rubio there, talking about the governor's accomplishments and his hopes for his -- for presidency under mitt romney, and as we have been telling you, it is early voting today in florida. the first day of early voting. just ten days out until election da
't extend to president obama. rhetoric is getting increasingly tough. mr. romney saying it lacks to agenda and amounts to stagnation. he argues that he and paul ryan will bring about bold changes. yesterday he gave a big speech that was the beginning of what constitutes a closing argument when you are still yesterday, 11 days, now 10 days away from election day. look for more attempts to shorten the rhetoric and sharpen the hits as they move closer to the election day. >> gregg: what a visual on a campaign bus heading to kissimmee. thanks. >> jamie: president obama making a campaign stop in a crucial battleground state of new hampshire. folk singer james carroll warming up the crowd gave a wide ranging speech outlining his will promise for the next five years. >> the unemployment rate is falling, manufacturing coming back to our shores. our assembly lines are humming again. housing prices are starting to pick up. housing starts are on the move. we've got a lot of work to do but new hampshire is country has come too far for us to turn back now. >> jamie: he won new hampshire by nine percent
. vowing he would be a bipartisan leader mr. romney laid into the president. >> he promised that his would be a post partisan presidency. we have watched him over the last four years and he's been divisive and demonized any group that opposed him. >> reporter: marco rubio attacked president obama's proposals with his sharp partisan rebuke. >> they are the ideas of countries that people come here to get away from. >> reporter: mitt romney will stop first in the heavily republican panhandle. then in a democratic leaning county trying to slice into the president's lead before closing the day near tampa, a battleground within this swing state. meanwhile not wanting to risk appearing to put politics before public safety. >> i was looking forward to being in virginia, but you know the hurricane is headed up there. i just spoke with governor mcdonald. the governor and i talked about that. he said, you know, the first responders really need to focus on preparation for the storms. >> reporter: the romney campaign said it rescheduled sunday stops in virginia where hurricane sandy is taking aim. >> a
." ouch. so mr. president, mr. romney, what role if any should the u.s. be playing in fixing europe's debt crisis? i ask. but all i hear is this. [ crickets ] then there's housing. yes, the recovery looks fragile, but it's real. more than 500,000 homeowners still got a notice last quarter. negative equity is falling, but 10.8 million americans are still under water. yet both candidates have been virtually silent on housing. but the one thing that really gets me, the one i've been talking about for months, the fiscal cliff, massive tax hikes, massive spending cuts scheduled to take effect january 1st. actually, it came up in the last debate when the president flatly dismissed it. >> it will not happen. >> it will not happen. he's talking about the sequester, the part of the fiscal cliff that mandates huge, sharp automatic spending cuts. he says it's not going to happen. how can the president be so sure? >> well, he can be sure because when the people vote on november 6th and the president is re-elected, a strong message will be sent that the american people want a balanced approach to solvi
president obama. >> he's smart accomplished and i backed obama the last election, and i'll back mr. romney this election. it's all about the economy. >> romney's message welcoming those in attendance including town thain wilbur ross, and john catsmatidis. he said he needs to do more than save america but save america's soul. >> you're going to save america's soul using those fat cat bankers those ass who ruined our economy. who are you going to vote for unless you want to do the exact opposite than those idiots did when they crashed the economy in 2008. look at these numbers. these are amazing. s&p 500 up 80%. dow jones up 70%. that is the fifth best equivalent period since 1900. so terrific in that regard. how about corporate profits they're through the roof. under obama 77.9% increase. they have to be ecstatic with obama. but they're not. it's never enough. more more, more, more. and obama has the nerve to once slightly criticize them. this is what he said. >> did i not run for office to be helping out a bunch of fat cat bankers on wall street. >> cenk: oh, my god how can he call them fa
$200 and less. mr. romney, 22% of his donors for $200 or less. romney has unprecedented amount of wealthy contributors. 45% of his contributors with: $2,500 the maximum you can give. i glean from that is obama has broader grassroots support base at least financially. romney is not exactly appea appealing to small donors. >> eric: remember yesterday i told you about president obama claiming to be the robin hood, savior of the middle class. i will tell you how he is stealing from the middle class. the white house has federal reserve, bernanke print trillions of dollars. the banks, his buddies, borrow the money from federal reseven, at 0% interest. doesn't cost them a penny. they can say give me $10 billion. the fed gives them $10 billion. they could either give us loans, home loans, car loans, small business loans, which is what they were supposed to do and should do. but instead they turn around and loan it right back to the feds. at 3%. we're actually transferring our tax money right in to the hands of the banks. no risk. that is why -- this is a no risk trade for them. it woul
submarines. but, really, there was some nicety, right, mr. romney? >> the president was right to up the usage of that technology. i congratulate him on taking out osama bin laden. i want to underscore the same point that the president made. i supported his action there. i felt the same as the president did. >> i think romney is leaning obama. >> it did not last long? >> we haven't heard an agenda for the president. >> team obama knows full steam ahead. the president went on a two-day battleground blitz this week or, as he calls it -- >> our 48-hour fly around campaign marathon extravaganza. >> speaking of extravaganza, did you hear about donald trump's big, huge, mega game changing bombshell announcement of president obama? yeah, neither did we. he did come out with this -- >> if barack obama opens up and gives his college records and applications and if he gives his passport applications -- >> you get the point. but the president got the last laugh. >> this all dates back to when we were growing up together in kenya. >> and from big hair to big bird. >> i'm glad to be the way i am. >> the ha
, there was the flag in perfect condition. and then he said, that is it on the flag pole on the table, next to mr. romney. and i reached over, grabbed ahold of the flag, and it was as if electricity was running through my arm. because i thought of the sacrifice of those men and women who have served in that mission. and in other nasa missions, who have put their lives in danger for us. for learning. for knowledge, for innovation, for pioneering, what americans tend to do. is live for something big. i think of the men and women who put themselves in harm's way, in danger's path, who serve in our military. i appreciate their sacrifice. there is a -- there is a wonderful verse in one of our national hymns, america the beautiful, that i love to mention to people. oh beautiful, for heros proved in liberating strife, who more than country served and loved their life. raise your hands, in memory of our armed forces. the american way, giving ourselves for something big. it happens in the home, my sister, in her 70s, her husband passed away. she has eight children. seven of them are married with kids of t
. earlier in kissimee mr. romney pointed out he will not go to virginia where he had had three events scheduled for tomorrow. the evening event was postponed last night and other two were cancel would. it is a critical state. but because of hurricane sandy, no virginia events for romney. this is how he let the crowd go in florida where it is not even raining now. >> i was looking forward to ande hurricane is headed up there and i spoke with governor mcdonald and we talked about that. he said you know, first responders really need to focus on the preparation for the storm. we'll go tho to ohio instead. cope the folk necessary virginia and new jersey and new york and on the coast in your minds and you know how tough the hurricanes can be and our hearts go out to them. interesting that they are applauding to go to ohio. the buck eye state will be pivotal. and early voting began in florida. it has been that way for a long, long time. the romney campaign is not seeking out guaranteed voters, but going after persuadable voters and trying to create new gop votes for romney. that contrast to
on one side with an hou long response is probably approaching zero. >> yes, mr. lincoln, you can go on your website and tell us what you think about slavery, right? >> but you've seen montage after montage of, for example, mitt romney's position on abortion.es hen u u see the montage, t it's so clear that he has many positions. and you can do a timeline along with it and, and make the relationship between his bid for higher office to it. why can't a debate inclu the playing of such a clip and then say, "mr. romney, please respont to that," as opposed to the formality even of a conventional press conference in which somee is free to duck.re you can dk a question. it's much harder to duck evidence and a video.an >> but the parties and the candidates will not agree to that, unless you have it on their terms. >> which is why i am more e dispirited, i think, than kathleen is because what you do get, even from this limited, signed on kabuki does still have some value, despite its limitations. i completely agree. >> but on abortion, here's what i think we can reasonably say reading histor
include the playing of such a clip and then say, "mr. romney, please respond to that," as opposed to the formality even of a conventional press conference in which someone is free to duck. you can duck a question. it's much harder to duck evidence and a video. >> but the parties and the candidates will not agree to that, unless you have it on their terms. >>hich is why i amore dispirited, i think, than kathleen is because what you do get, even from this limited, signed on kabuki does still have some value, despite its limitations. i completely agree. >> but on abortion, here's what i think we can reasonably say reading history. what candidates say they will do in the general election of a mo presidential campaign and what they repeatedly say they're going to do does predict what they're going to try to do, regardless of what they've done in their past or what they've said in the past. i would predict that if governor romney is elected president, he would support, nominate justices who would be more likely to overturn roe v. wade than would barack obama. i think that it is cl r, ho
president obama in the lead, 56 to 46%. here's one of mr. romney's biggest supporters. >> i feel pressure in that way. if we don't win ohio, it's tough to think we'll win the national debate. >> henry, let's talk about the ground game in ohio. who has the advantage? >> it's tough to say at this point. the obama campaign never left after 2008. they like to tell us that. they like to remind us of that. the romney campaign has been on the ground since the primary was over probably in april. they had a lot of catching up to do. they are stressing their door knocking capabilities. they've knocked on over a million doors in ohio. it's tough to say. the obama campaign has a superior ground game. they were heavily involved in a ballot issue a year ago. that was seen as a scrimmage for 2012. and right now we're just waiting to see who's turning out the early vote fast enough. >> but it seems like president obama has the sense there, that's what experts say. we just talked to michael mcdonald. it seems that way. do you think it's the thing that has enough with the wind at its back to carry him? >>
's lived his life. >> more from mrs. romney at the bottom of the hour here on cnn the in the meantime the first lady, michelle obama, spoke with our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin. she says her husband, the president, is dedicated to helping all americans. >> what i can tell you about my husband is that he's been working to ensure that every american can have a real shot at the american dream. you know. that people can have a job that pays a decent wage. that people don't lose their homes because someone gets sick. you know, that you can send your kids to college maybe or maybe your kids can learn a trade and get a good job that pays benefits and that folks can retire with a little dignity and security. >> earlier this week the first lady spoke in florida preaching her husband's message in a vital swing state. >> we believe in an america where all of us, where we understand that none of us gets where we are on our own. that we all have a community of people lifting us up. where we treat everyone, everyone with dignity and respect. from the teachers who inspire us to th
. meanwhile the obama camp has released a new ad taking aim at mr. romney's economic plan. >> in here it's just you. no ads, no debates, just you. so think about this. mitt romney's plan rolls back regulations on the banks that crashed our economy. medicare voucherized. >> president obama also talking about avoiding the fiscal cliff which would trigger tax hikes and spending cuts two short months from now. he says he wants to work with congressional republicans on it. >> i've said to folks, i'll go to capitol hill. i'll wash john boehner's car. i'll walk mitch mcconnell's dog. i'll do whatever is required to get this done. >> president obama heads to new hampshire a bit later today for a stop in nashua. vice president biden is scheduled to hold an event in lynch burg, virginia. >>> now we go to ohio where nbc's ron mott is on that bus tour with paul ryan. hello to you ron again. where are you in the many stops on that bus tour today? >> reporter: hey there, alex. i've got to get my back stretched out. we've got five stops as you mentioned here today. three more tomorrow. eight in total.
, the veteran, ignored romney's charge. >> mr. romney, let's put the ads aside and talk about health care. let's talk about education. let's talk about training. let's talk about new jobs. let's talk about infrastructure. let's talk about our different vision for massachusetts. that's what the people of massachusetts want to talk about. and that's what i think they ought to hear about. >> i think about 10 or 15 minutes in, romney began to realize this was not the easy exercise he thought it was going to be. >> narrator: then romney faltered. the issue was health care. >> i have a plan. i have a position paper on health care. i'm happy to show it to you, senator, any time you'd like. >> mr. romney, it isn't a question of showing me your paper. it's a question of showing all of the people in here that are watching this program the paper. they ought to have an opportunity to know. what is the cost of your program? >> i don't have a cost of my program. >> you don't have a cost? >> no, i'm sorry, i don't have... >> what would be the impact of that on the budget? >> well, the impact, i do not know t
blow the kiss good-bye. >> mr. mourdock's comments do not reflect governor romney's views. we disagree on the policy regarding exceptions for rape and incest-- increst but still support him. >> jon: not often do you hear someone say i disagree with your views on rape and increst but -- -- incest. >> i disagree with your views on rape and incest but not a deal breaker. (laughter) well, if romney wasn't willing to throw mourdock under the bus the same couldn't be said for your friends at morning joe. >> it is remarkable what republican candidates have said this year. >> i know. >> regarding abortion, regarding rape. >> jon: finally, republican admits fellow republicans is renug-- repugnant. please, continue with the moral stand you take. >> i'm a pro-life guy. but they are driving away so many swing voters. >> jon: no, that's not the problem. that's not the problem. no, no, no. the problem is the beliefing of the things, not that he-- the problem isn't that he violated the first law of the fetus club which is don't talk about fetus club, like that's not-- because it's the idea. i mean wh
was calling in to say that mr. romney wants for nothing and he is just running for president for power. if he is elected, we will go back to being barefoot and pregnant and the states or as they're going right now are going to start becoming small countries if power is given to them. and people in the south will see the rise again of us moving into the civil war type situation. host: before we talk to you we were talking about gender issues. do social issues whatever factor into voting there in wisconsin? guest: sure, like anywhere else they go into i think the way people line up in both parties and that's -- i don't know if it's any more true or less true in wisconsin than any other state host: california. our independent line. craig, you're on. caller: is this for me now? host: you're on, sir. go ahead. caller: i wasn't sure because you didn't list it properly. host: we're running out of time. go ahead. caller: i just want to mention because i think there's a problem with semantics in this country. and what i mean by that is everybody looks at romney from the standpoint as this man as a bui
tended to campaign most heavily in the western part of the state. for example, mr. romney has made several appearances in the western part of the state but has not made any appearances in the eastern part of the state. president obama has made quite a few appearances in the eastern part of the state but not recently. that is also true of michelle obama and vice president joe biden. they tend to campaign more in the eastern part of the state in the research triangle where their political strength has been. host: it has been mentioned the president has not been in north carolina since the convention. are people taking notice of that? guest: oh, yes, except for the convention, the president has not campaigned in north carolina since april. we have not really seen the principles here very much at all. governor romney was here a few weeks back and made an appearance in asheville but that was mainly to have a visit with billy graham which was important. it was an important message to send to religious conservatives that it was ok for them to vote for a mormon. aside from that, governor r
. but was presented as such by brian williams. now, talking points is not sniping at either the president nor mr. williams. but this is one big mess. and the national media is not demanding answers nor did governor romney during the foreign policy debate. by the way, despite that interview with mr. obama, the factor at 8:00 last night beat the nbc program rock center in total audience, which is kind of amazing. getting back to libya. my view is this: muslim terrorists were tracking ambassador stevens. they had heavy weapons at the ready. and saw an opening to attack in benghazi. there is nothing spontaneous about that. the cia was caught napping, then froze when all hell broke loose. apparently not understanding rescue options or what was at stake. when the damage and death became fully known, the obama administration tried to manage it, rather than report it. and so chaos developed. people like u.n. ambassador susan rice, as well as white house spokesperson jay carney did not assess the situation correctly to the public. talking points believes carney and rice were told by the public what to s
of european uncertainty and laying off workers in the european plant. that mr. president or governor romney should be getting your attention. europe matters more than china right now. defend your continent. >> ali velshi told us nothing that we didn't already know. well done, ali velshi. the fact why the candidates aren't talking about china or europe is simple. they can't do anything about it. europe is a trading block big if not bigger than the united states. the united states is shout all about it, but there's they can really do about the european sovereign debt crisis other than worry about it. china, however, is a long-term running saw. you have got a change of government this year. you have got an economy that is slowing but is not going to crash. you have a rising middle class. you have a more important economy in the longer term because it's growing faster. that is why immediately you need to worry about europe. longer term, it's china that is the big worrying saw. as for ali velshi, maybe he needs to remember which side is which. >> richard, you made sense for the first time in a l
in a virtual tie with the president. but in ohio, romney has seen much smaller gains. mr. obama has consist enly lead in the polls here and still holds an average of a 2 to 3 point lead. with the resurgence of the auto industry, new steal production and the promise of large natural gas reserves, you can sense the optimm here in northeast ohio. but biguestnnow is whether democratic strongholds like youngstown will give mr. obama enough margin to carry the state and stay in the white house. mr. obama's popularity here is maintained by strong support from autoworkers like union president green. >> in march everything almost came to a halt, right. the contractors we had in the plant were backing off. there were helicopters flying over our plant taking inventory, people walking through our plant with clipboards taking inventory. they were going to liquidate our facility. that's a fact. so mitt romney can air brush this ll i wants. that's what was happening at the time. the fact that president obama stood up and said i'm going take a bet on the american workers and we're going to invest in this
forces of growth here play into the messages of both campaigns. mr. obama points to his administration's auto rescue for saving jobs. and romney emphasizes the need for domestic energy production as an economic engine for the area. >> we've had a lot of positive economic news over the last couple of months. and so the question is, is it too close to the election to really make an impact on people's votes? or are people still kind of weighing the economic realities of the country and of the state. >> reporter: the city of lord's town is home to a sprawling general motors factory, the area's largest employer. once on the verge of collapse, it's become a national symbol of the federal bailout of the auto industry and a center piece of mr. obama's campaign. former president bill clinton who will visit ohio next week with the president pointed to the plant's success as this summer's democratic party conventions in charlotte. >> the auto industry restructuring worked. itre saved-- it saved more than a million jobs, and not just at gm, chrysler and their dealerships, but in auto parts manufac
